BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, August 2, 2011
After departing West Ham United at the conclusion of last season, American defender Jonathan Spector has signed a two year contract with Birmingham City of the English Championship.

Spector, 25, has spent his entire professional career in England after joining Manchester United in 2003. After a loan in 2005 to Charlton Athletic, Spector has been with West Ham United since 2006. Birmingham City will be Spector's fourth club.

"Jonathan Spector has signed a two year contract with our club," Birmingham City press officer Chris Kershaw told YA. "The deal is confirmed."

Birmingham City will be looking for a successful season in the Championship so that they can return to the Premier League after being relegated last season.

A move to Birmingham would do him good! Being in the Championship, it would really be nice having at least two opportunities to score goals on his old team that snubbed him. Mark him well Hammers! You don't want happened against Manchester Utd to happen to you!!

It's a good move. He should play most if not all of the time. Hopefully, they can promote back into the premier league and he can have another shot at it.

Logical place for Jon to go. It may be the championship, but they won the League Cup last season, thus they get a Europa League slot.
